Forward Guerschon Yabusele, who the Celtics selected No. 16 overall in the 2016 draft, will not play summer league ball this offseason following foot surgery to remove bone spurs from the top of both his feet, according to ESPN’s Chris Forsberg.
Following last year’s draft, the 6-foot-8, 265-pound power forward spent his first professional season stashed away in China, playing for the Shanghai Dongfang. While abroad he averaged an impressive 20.8 points and 9.4 rebounds per game.
The frenchman went on to finish his season back in the States, with the Celtics’ D-League affiliate, the Maine Red Claws. In five games coming off the bench, he averaged 12.8 points, 5.4 rebounds, and two assists, while shooting 49 percent from the field.
As it stands, he should be fully recovered before the end of the summer and is expected to be ready for the start of training camp.
